I hope the Devil tortures Tripp after today lol. But it seems to be an anvil that he's next.
I honestly don't remember the last time Julie/John interacted. They don't very often at all like in their entire histories.
Weren't Ben/Ciara having the same dreams about their kid Bo Jr. like a month ago? Ben is correct, but I can understand Ciara being blindsided by this because he didn't mention it before. I guess they were too busy in bed to talk about their life plans. Honestly, I don't care so I don't even know why I brought it up.
I thought the MarDevil stuff was good. I just can't take months of it. I clearly couldn't take it in the original story and I am not looking forward to it now.
I have no idea why TPTB still pull out the youth card in chasing demos...yes young people are important to both attracting young viewers and keeping the story lines going...(seeing Josh and Reva and Lily and Holden acting like middle aged fools was boring and embarrassing..) but I know in college some of our favorite characters were Bert and H.B.
Goutman didn't mention Eileen or Lisa, its that troll above who says she wans't important.
Tripp is too boring for the Devil. You know Ron's Devil is all hot for Ben
It is really nice seeing John and Julie interacting.
You can tell DH is enjoying it.
Phloe feels like an afterthought, even with the nice flashbacks we got. There's no investment there and that's a shame. I feel like it's always going to end up with Brady/Chloe. Brady/Chloe/Phillip/Ava/Jake/Gabi could all be SO interesting mixing it up but yet ... zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Whenever I read this theory I feel the need to squash this myth based on the excellent reporting by Alecia Swasy in her book Soap Opera:: The Inside Story of Proctor & Gamble. The P&G soap ratings had not changed significantly in years and most were still profitable at their cancellation.
However, civil lawsuits based on faulty product science began creating huge losses for the company. Fans tend to personalize the decision because of our devotion to the shows. Yet the truth is that toxic shock from faulty tampons were much more of a concern for P&G than the production of television.
We may think that the company is at fault for ignoring the wishes of fans, but what we should really be mad about is their willingness to foist productions on to the public when scientific testing was either ignored or subverted.
I don't doubt JFP had something to do with SJB's first departure, but since she returned later I always assumed it was something salvageable when cooler heads prevailed? But I have no idea. SJB seems to have had her struggles and she has had some of the worst roles on daytime soaps it's a shame. Was Sarah not available when TB left?
Anyway it's a bummer. Nothing about LW would scream Carly to me even though I know she was what the network always wanted after TB.
It does seem like Carson have a lot of stans online (none here I don't think lol), but so did JaSam and they broke them up. It really seemed like GH was onto something with this Mike/Nina/Jason/Sonny stuff and then they made the least soapy choice available.
